from ‘Into The Wild’

Doesn’t this inspire you to travel far and wide? My heart beats faster as I read these lines and imagination draws pictured of distant lands, where I haven’t stepped my foot (just) yet. We must embark on journeys, we must explore, we must get to know, because, I believe, experience of this life here on Earth is a gift, which we shouldn’t take for granted. If we have the capacity but choose to spend our lives in four familiar walls in the age when so many things became possible, it’s  a shame.

“Make a radical change in your lifestyle and begin to boldly do things which you may previously never have thought of doing, or been too hesitant to attempt. So many people live within unhappy circumstances and yet will not take the initiative to change their situation because they are conditioned to a life of security, conformity, and conservation, all of which may appear to give one peace of mind, but in reality nothing is more damaging to the adventurous spirit within a man than a secure future. The very basic core of a man’s living spirit is his passion for adventure. The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences, and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new and different sun. If you want to get more out of life, you must lose your inclination for monotonous security and adopt a helter-skelter style of life that will at first appear to you to be crazy. But once you become accustomed to such a life you will see its full meaning and its incredible beauty.”

In Morocco call for the prayer is always going to be there whatever populated place you visit, palms not so much. Going East of Casablanca this is the landscape, and it is absolutely mesmerising.
